Question: The bible is the inspired word of God. All scripture will interpret scripture. If we could find ONE scripture anywhere that would cast doubt on any doctrine then that doctrine would have to be declared IMPURE. TRUE FALSE
Correct Answer TRUE READ carefully: This is known as Sola Scriptura (Martin Luther) meaning that NO ONE PERSON can have a private interpretation of scripture. 2 Pet 1:20 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation
Here is how this works. When a group of people decide to start a church they will also want to create doctrinal statements. For instance, they will agree that Jesus was the Son of God and died for the sins of the entire world. As they examined scripture if any one of them could find just ONE SCRIPTURE that would cast doubt on that doctrine then they would have to declare the doctrine IMPURE. We all know that on this doctrine that would be impossible. This means that we each cannot have our "opinion" about the bible and someone else can have their "opinion." We must let scripture speak for itself. Many church doctrines today are considered IMPURE by most biblical scholars around the world today. The reason, many scriptures contradict the numerous denominational doctrines that have been created by men without respect for scripture.
Question; Tithing has been a practice of the church since the beginning of the church. TRUE FALSE
Correct Answer FALSE Tithing was NEVER practiced in all of church history until it was instituted by a group of Catholic Bishops at an assembly in Tours France in 567AD. After that the people still refused to tithe or tithed reluctantly. So later in 585AD, at the Council of Macon they issued several "new laws." Several laws for violating the Sunday rest and then they nailed the people with a demand insisting on the obligation of the people to pay tithes. If someone did not pay their tithes, they were considered as someone who was "Robbing God." Sound familiar? You must realize that up to that point, tithing had NEVER been a practice by anyone. Not even the reprobate Catholic INSTITUTION collected them before these dates. There were no other churches.
Question; The Temple Priests in the Old Testament collected tithes in the form of food because the people did not have money in those days. God also wanted people to tithe in food because it would point to a symbolic picture of Christ the perfect tithe. TRUE FALSE
Correct Answer FALSE Money was a common commodity and not everyone was a farmer... including Jesus. READ Deut 14:24-25 24 "But if the journey is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, or if the place where the LORD your God chooses to put His name is too far from you, when the LORD your God has blessed you, 25 "then you shall exchange it for money, take the money in your hand, and go to the place which the LORD your God chooses.
Many pulpits preach that the tithers did not have money in the Old Testament. Often people are given the impression from the pulpit that everyone in the OT were farmers. Every Merchant in the Old Testament used money as a commodity. Yet, God required them to tithe with FOOD. Why do you think God wanted tithes in the form of food and not money? The answer will stun you.
Question; What did the tither do with the tithe in the Old Testament every time he offered tithes to God? A. He took it to the temple and gave it to the priest. B. He kept some of it for himself and gave a tenth to the priest. C. He gave the money to the High Priest and put some in the treasury and that went to the widows and orphans. D. He ATE the tithe
Correct Answer D. The Tither ATE the tithe in every instance. Remember if we can find ONE scripture anywhere that would cast doubt on any doctrine then that doctrine would have to be declared IMPURE. Read it for yourself. Deut 14:24-25 22 "You shall truly tithe all the increase of your grain that the field produces year by year. 23 "And you shall eat before the LORD your God, in the place where He chooses to make His name abide, the tithe of your grain and your new wine and your oil, of the firstborn of your herds and your flocks, that you may learn to fear the LORD your God always. Cont.
24 "But if the journey is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, or if the place where the LORD your God chooses to put His name is too far from you, when the LORD your God has blessed you, 25 "then you shall exchange it for money, take the money in your hand, and go to the place which the LORD your God chooses. 26 "And you shall spend that money for whatever your heart desires: for oxen or sheep, for wine or similar drink, for whatever your heart desires; you shall eat there before the LORD your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household. 27 "You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no part nor inheritance with you.
An important question you should ask yourself about this time is how could anyone ever be charged with Robbing God as many preach today... "Will a man rob God?" Since the tithe was supplied by God and the tither was to EAT the tithe. How then could the tither ever be charged by God with robbing Him? Why did God want the tither to EAT the tithe WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT GOD REALLY MEANT IN MALACHI Chapter 3. FINAL POINT.... Take note that the tithe was ONLY on the INCREASE. Not one time in the entire bible was a tithe ever offered when the person's life was on a DECREASING scale. NO giving to GET Gospel anywhere in the book.
Question; Abraham as the father of faith paid tithes and so should we. TRUE FALSE
Correct Answer FALSE Abraham did not take a thin dime out of his pocket and pay tithes contrary to what you have been told by the pulpit. Abraham did give a portion of "the spoils of war" to Melchizedek but took nothing for himself and offered nothing out of his own pocket. Think about it, if you were to really tithe just like Abraham then you should never take anything out of your own pocket. READ IT FOR YOURSELF
Gen 14:28-24 18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. 19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: 20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all. 21 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. Cont.
22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth, 23 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: 24 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion. Why did this strange Priest Melchizedek accept tithes in the form of "the spoils of war?" Especially when the spoils represented the very filth of Sodom?
Question; How many sermons have you heard on how to tithe like Jacob? A. None B. Ten C. 50 D. 100
Correct Answer NONE Seriously, ask yourself how many sermons you have heard on How to tithe like Jacob? Why has the pulpit intentionally failed to use Jacob? Why have they not made a complete sermon on "How to tithe like Jacob?" There is a reason! After all Jacob is the first man in ALL of scripture to say that he would take 10% out of his pocket. (It was not Abraham as we have seen.) Jacob was the man that God chose to father of the 12 tribes. God changed Jacob's name to Israel. Jacob was the Grandson of Abraham! As tithing goes, it should not get any better than this. Why has your pastor failed to teach YOU how to tithe like Jacob? There is a REASON!
Question; Tithes were collected in the New Testament for which of the following reasons. A. Tithes in the New Testament were collected so the Gospel got out. The money was used to HELP spread the Gospel around the world. B. Tithes were used to help start the early churches. C. The Saints ATE the tithes. D. Tithes were used to build family life centers and building funds.
Correct Answer C. The Saints ATE the tithes. Tithes were never collected anywhere in the New Testament church. In every instance when money was collected, it was given to the poor Saints who had needs. (It was eaten) Many of the Saints in Jerusalem were suffering severe persecution and were facing starvation. Historians record that the famine was so great that some mothers had actually eaten their own children. Here is another historical FACT. There were no "church buildings" until around 300 years after the death of Christ. Constantine the Roman Emperor started the building of churches. Do you know why you get dressed up on Sunday? It all started with Constantine. He was known to POP IN on a church from time to time so the people got dressed in their best clothing just in case the Emperor showed up. Of coarse, I am sure that you know that God looks at the heart and not what you wear.
If we say that the Holy Spirit needs money to get the Gospel preached around the world, are we not saying that the Holy Spirit is then subject to the Power of Mammon? I am sure that you will agree with me that the Holy Spirit can save a drunk on a barstool all by Himself without a preacher or TBN. Jesus never said "Won't you help us take this message to the world." Send in your best gift. You know that it will cost a lot of money to reach the lost." Remember this... The Holy Spirit is not now... nor will He ever be subject to the power of Mammon.
Name One person in the New Testament that ever paid a tithe From the resurrection of Christ? 0 You will get Angry when you find out the lies preached to you from the pulpit about Malachi chapter three. (Will a man ROB God) Find out what Jesus really meant when He spoke about and the widows mite. Elijah and the Widow woman... this will absolutely STUN you. Jacobs tithing habits and the "TEST QUESTION" in the book will surprise you. Why Ananias was really struck dead? You will get angry again. When you see what Jesus meant when he was saying, "Not one jot or tittle will pass from the Law until all be fulfilled." Is Hebrews Chapter 7 really talking about a tithe? Who is CD Jesus? Your Pastor Knows! Tithing is nothing more than... Circumcision of the Wallet!
Over 500,000 people around the world have been set free from the man made religious bondage of tithing and guilt of "Will a man rob God." Many pastors are now teaching from Lie of the Tithe.
